Alsons makes the spout...

It is sold at many places...

Home Depot for one...

Thanks for this helpful suggestion. I went to HomeDepot.com and saw that they carry the exact one pictured (it's a Delta) and they also have one from Alsons that is similar. They also carry the other part that you would need, the Alsons add-a-shower handheld unit. Does the Delta 5 in. handshower diverter spout work with the Alson's Add-a-shower handshower unit, or must I buy the Alson's 5 1/4" Diverter Tub Spout to make this work properly?

How do I get the original spout off? Fixed income, don't want to call a plummer.

The spout will either unscrew or, there is a screw near the wall in a hole in the underside which locks it in place when loosened allows the spout to slip off...

The hole will also be present on many spouts that screw on....

I don't want to fork over the money for a plumber, but it's inevitable with the leaking going on in an old Boston home I just purchased. Nice avatar Redwood!
